Power, Energy and Business Development Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that he was against the removal of Director General of the Customs Department Ms P.S.M. Charles.

Speaking at a media briefing he said that he knows what lies behind replacing the customs DG. But as long as the subject does not come under my purview, exposing before the media is unethical, he said.

However, a discussion would be held during the cabinet meeting this evening regarding the custom’s issue, the minister said.

The work-to-rule campaign was started by the Customs officials over the replacing of Director General of the Customs Department, Ms P.S.M. Charles, with a retired Navy officer had cost the country a thumping Rs. 12 billion so far. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    When the custom officers work according to rule, as they claim,how could the country record such a massive loss? It seems these custom people only worked outside their normal working hours to claim overtime and holiday pay and done little during normal office hours.During the TU action they only "worked"during office time and did not work outside their normal working time,

    The less said about Ravi K the better.Can you trust a man who did not know who paid for a luxury bed when he weeps for the masses of the country.Further how responsible he is as a Minister is clear.None trust politicians today however Mangala is not known as a rogue but RK is proved beyond doubt referred to the Bribery Commission by a Presidential Commission.
